This product is a lifesaver for me. I used to make my own lip scrubs, but it became too troublesome for me. I had to clean out my old LUSH face mask tub(I used it to store mine), mix all the ingredients together and when I wanted to use it I'd have to stir the whole mess together again cause it settled. Not only did that take up a lot of time, it wasn't convenient to me. Sometime I'll be at work or school and my lips will flake and I can't do anything but peel it off which is awful. I gave up and decided to buy this, hoping desperately it would work. First off, this scrub has an addicting smell. Like seriously. It smells like vanilla and chocolate...ahh so delicious! I'll sniff this when I want a little smile on my face cause we all know those two smells are so damn yummy! Plus I do love licking the sugar off my lips when I'm done exfoliating. The sugar is fine and really smooths out your lips and makes them pillowy soft :). It comes with a lot in it and you don't need to use a lot. Mine expires in a year which is awesome cause some LUSH products life span is short lived. I absolutely love this and would repurchase again!
Lip Treatments -Burt's Bees - Rejuvenating Lip Balm with Acai Berry

Mmm I love the smell of this little lip balm. I'm big into Burt's Bees chapsticks and recently I'd been using the medicated one with clove oil. I saw this with a purple cap in my grocery store and knew I hadn't tried it so I picked it up. It has a lovely subtly fruity smell that you still can smell a bit on your lips, then wears away. Its fairly moisturizing and is packed with antioxidants. This will definitely be my new favorite lip balm :)
Lipstick -Maybelline - Color Sensational-Coral Crush
Themonsunxxx 7/28/2010 10:38:00 AM
Oh my gosh. I fell head over heels in love with this coral lipstick. I had been looking for a nice drugstore coral lipstick. This was absolutely perfect. It smells nice and is very pigmented. The wear of it was also pretty good. It lasted me a few hours. This is absolutely my HG coral lipstick. Love this <3.
I would describe this color as a pinky gold. It's very sheer and the color doesn't show up too well on pigmented lips. I could easily find a better dupe for it somewhere else. It's an average gloss. I wouldn't buy again.
Lip Gloss -Cover Girl - Wetslicks Fruit Spritzers - Lemon Splash
Themonsunxxx 7/28/2010 10:30:00 AM
Complete waste of money for me. I was attracted to this gloss by the goldy yellow color. It goes on clear, has a generic lemon scent and just has absolutely nothing special about it. Plus when you squeeze a little bit for some product a huge glob comes out. Ew ew ew.
I received this product as part of a campaign on BzzAgent. First off, I have to say I'm a die-hard Lashblast fan. It's my HG mascara and I love it to pieces. When I heard this campaign was going on I was ecstatic to try it. The packaging is still bulky and big, but I absolutely love the purple. It's my favorite color, plus it's cuter than the orange. When it comes to how it compares to Lashblast I think they're extremely similar. There's not much of a difference between the two in my opinion. I feel like the original Lashblast is a bit more voluminous than this one. Lashblast fusion works better for lengthening lashes, not voluminous them to my disappointment. So honestly I don't find a major difference between these two mascaras. But I must say I do love them both dearly. They really open up my eyes, make me look more awake and up. I really like this mascara. It holds my curl, doesn't clump, doesn't flake. Taking it off at night is a breeze. I do love this mascara and I would buy it, but I do prefer original Lashblast. But I would repurchase this again without a doubt.
I can honestly say for me, this lipstick was love at first swipe. I've had great experiences with the Revlon Colorburst Lipsticks. I already have Rosy Nude, Lilac and Carnation and I love them all. The quality of the Colorburst lipsticks are to me, the best of drugstore lipsticks. They're firm, but soft and creamy and are heavily pigmented. So when I saw Peach I wanted to get it because I was searching for a nice everyday lipstick color. This fit the bill perfectly. It had the great quality of the Colorburst lipsticks and the color worked well for my skin tone. This lipstick is lovely and would recommend it to anyone :)
Blush -Wet 'n' Wild - Mega Glo Illuminating Powder - Strike-A-Pose-Rose #346
Themonsunxxx 7/18/2010 2:14:00 AM
I heard great reviews of this illuminating powder online. It gives a gorgeous warm pink flush to the cheeks. I like it better for the winter. It doesn't really give me a good summer glow. It makes me look too flushed. The packaging isn't all that great and it cracks for no reason. Mine cracked twice and I didn't even do anything to it. I'd say this is a great drugstore product. The quality you get for your money is great. I would buy again.
Smells nice, cheap and does the job. I love Dove products and they always work awesomely. So I would repurchase!
I got this product in a set with two other full sized products for only ten dollars. So I got this for a steal. This shampoo is decent for an everyday, fresh clean. It cleans my oily hair pretty well, but if I wash my hair twice in the shower my hair looks super oily the next day. It has a nice summery smell which I like. It's a good, everyday shampoo but I'm sure you could find a drugstore dupe for it. So I wouldn't repurchase.
Styling Products -Garnier - Wonder Waves Wave Enhancing Spray
Themonsunxxx 7/15/2010 9:48:00 PM
I heard about this product through Erin on Youtube. Ever since I purchased this I've been loving it! It has the same Garnier yummy smell. It works wonders on my natural wave, enhancing it. If you spray too much though or at too short of a range then my hair will be crunchy. So if you use a little it works well for beach hair. Plus it's so so so cheap! I would buy again!
Lipstick -Wet 'n' Wild - Mega Last Matte Lipstick in 901B Think Pink
Themonsunxxx 7/15/2010 9:41:00 PM
This is one of the worst products I've purchased ever. So I heard about it from a Youtuber and usually I'm a big fan of Wet 'n' Wild so I got it. It was drying, an ugly color and worst off the lipstick fell out of the packaging. The packaging was a complete joke. It was fine for the first week, then the lipstick decided to escape. So it fell on my bathroom floor and needless to say it didn't travel too far. It took a nice little trip from the floor to the trashcan. Don't waste your money and buy some other drugstore brand. Anything else but this.
Eye Shadow -BeneFit Cosmetics - Creaseless Cream Shadow/Liner in R.S.V.P.

Wow, this cream shadow is gorgeous! It's a beautiful shimmery nudey-pink color. I wear with a matching powder shadow, UD liner in Zero and mascara for a nice, natural glam look. I would repurchase =]
Blush -Clinique - Blushwear Cream Stick - Rosy Blush
Themonsunxxx 7/15/2010 5:58:00 PM
I've been a huge advocate for Clinique makeup since middle school. I love so many of their products. I got this blush as a GWP. It's a great smooth, creamy consistency but unfortunately the color doesn't work well with my skin tone. Also I'm not great with working with cream blushes. So I'll give it a three for quality and color, but it just didn't work out for me personally. I'm sure it would look great on someone with a different skin tone than me.
I got a sample of Erase Paste in Medium in the Stay Put set. I must say I'm please with this product. I had always wanted to try Erase Paste, but the price seemed too much for so little product that I might end up not liking. Trying a sample of Erase Paste helped me put those thoughts aside. An important thing you need to remember about Erase Paste when I say a little goes a long way I mean LITERALLY. When I first dipped my concealer brush into it I took a huge, unnecessary chunk out. When I had finished concealing everything I had half left that I hadn't used. So I started using a lighter hand while using Erase Paste which helped significantly. It's not cakey at all and really brightens up my eye area. It covers my red pimples and whiteheads nicely. It's consistency is so creamy. I just love this product. Even though its expensive you won't run out any time soon, I promise you! I will purchase in full size when I run out. Love this!
